Greenpeace glues locks on Barclays bank branches across Wales

CARDIFF, UK, 2nd MARCH 2020.

Greenpeace have placed a pop up exhibition trailer with images highlighting the effects of global warming outside of Barclays bank on Working Street, St Davids Centre, Cardiff.

In the early hours of the morning, branches in the Roath, Whitchurch and the Llandaff North areas of Cardiff were also rendered out of action. Greenpeace activists disabled bank doors by gluing them shut to prevent staff from entering. Other branches in Builth Wells, Brecon and Llandrindod Wells were also targeted. The Welsh banks are part of nearly 100 branches that have been shut down by protestors across the UK.

Emily Davies from Greenpeace (pictured) stated the reason for shutting down Barclays specifically is because “they’ve put 85 billion dollars into fossil fuels between 2016 and 2018 and we are here today telling them that they have to stop”.
